...nothing you previously reported inspired any confidence in me that SIL was getting sound asset-planning advice from someone who could be trusted.Perhaps she is getting good advice, and is simply explaining incorrectly; but DIY asset planning for Medicaid-eligibility and DIY estate planning often lead to unintended (and sometimes, bad) results, which do not maifiest themselves until it is too late to remedy.Yes, I predict a train wreck. What's going on (according to the muddled 3rd-hand info I'm getting) just doesn't pass the sniff test. However, I can't exactly say, "Yo, SIL, your lawyer has a JD, but I have info from the internet, so who you gonna believe?"Meanwhile, DH has sent her links and lists of questions. Whether she's getting answers for herself I don't know, but she hasn't sent any detailed response to us. The latest is that she has said it would be simpler to just put the house in her and FIL's names, leaving DH out of it. As long as she leaves DH and me out of it (and, as stated before, ensures FIL's getting good care), it's her business. DH touches base with her every few days, so if she does float that DH-on-deed balloon again, he should be able to shoot it down before anything comes of it. I hope. I can't save her from making a mess for herself, but I hope I can avoid her making a mess for me.
